Public Health Nutrition to become Open Access from January 2022

Published online: 25 January 2021

The journal Public Health Nutrition is to become fully open access from 1 January 2022, making it permanently and freely available to read, download and share around the world.
Published on the Society’s behalf by Cambridge University Press, Public Health Nutrition (PHN) focuses on the promotion of good health through nutrition and the prevention of nutrition related illness. Founded in 1998, it provides an international, peer-reviewed forum for research aimed at understanding causes and solutions for nutrition-related public health issues around the world.
Editor-in-Chief, Dr Allison Hodge, said: “A growing proportion of papers in the journal are already published Open Access and this move will ensure greater visibility and impact for the high-quality research that we publish, strengthening the journal’s contribution to nutrition science for the benefit of all.” 

Public Health Nutrition will join Gut Microbiome and the Journal of Nutritional Science as part of the growing Open Access portfolio from the Society.
Honorary Publications Officer, Professor Jayne Woodside said: “The Nutrition Society is dedicated to delivering its mission of advancing the scientific study of nutrition and its application to the maintenance of human health. Converting Public Health Nutrition to Open Access will mean that global research barriers are removed, regardless of where members are, which is an important step in advancing that mission. ”
To ensure the journal continues to support its broad and diverse international author community, there will be automatic discounts and waivers to publishing fees for researchers from developing countries, based on the Research4Life eligibility list. In addition, authors from institutions covered by one of Cambridge University Press’s Open Access Read & Publish deals will be able to publish free of charge. 

Members of the Society will be eligible for a 25% discount on the Article Processing Charge.
